SR – Age 59
My journey began 12 years ago with thyroid symptoms that were not diagnosed properly; chronic hives, horrible digestive issues off and on for years, vitiligo, weight gain, and horrible mood swings. My internist told me my TSH number was high and wanted to put me on Synthroid. I had to wait 5 months to see an endocrinologist.
During that 5 months, my problems worsened; my hair was falling out, my weight climbed higher, my heart would race or I would have palpitations, my blood pressure was too high, brain fog was a huge problem, I had no energy, my hands and feet were always cold, and my usual sunny outlook on life was completely gone. It was a struggle to get through most days.
I was told by the endocrinologist that I had Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. I began taking Armour thyroid along with hormones (estradiol, progesterone, testosterone). Soon after, I experienced terrible joint pain. I could barely get out of bed and each day I felt worse than the day before. I was crying uncontrollably all the time and was sleeping 10-12 hours a day. I was researching as much as possible about my issues on the internet. However, the internet can be a very confusing and overwhelming place and soon I was at a loss as to how to heal myself and what foods were best for me.
God led me to Dr. Sharon Price. I barely made it through the first visit because of my joint pain and roller coaster emotions but she was very knowledgeable, compassionate, organized, and a wonderful Christian woman. I knew this was the right place to be and she assured me I would get better. By the fourth month I was able to stop taking pain meds and felt like I was finally turning a corner on my health issues.
I am confident you can also be helped by Dr. Sharon Price. Oh, and did I mention, I lost 35 pounds in this incredible journey. THANK YOU DR. PRICE!
